Restylane for Crow's Feet?
If you draw a 45 degree angle from your pupil toward your cheek, the area below this line is for filler and the area above the line is for Dysport. Based on the photo it appears that most of the issue would be for Dysport at the crow's feet.
In any event, most practitioners would not suggest filler for the crow's feet because the issue is related more so to muscle contraction than to dermal fillers. You can view photos of our patient Dysport treatments for this area at the link below.
